Shipping by sea
Last year, over $4 trillion of goods were transported over the oceans. Container shipping by sea is the dominant freight mode in our global economy.
As a freight forwarder, Eastern can manage your ocean freight services worldwide. We offer an expansive network of locations and can provide a full array of global services — including air freight and rail/truck intermodal — to get your cargo to its ultimate destination.
We’ll book your cargo, arrange pickup and delivery, and manage shipping documentation, regardless of point of destination or carrier. We’ll facilitate the entire process to meet the applicable requirements of the import and export countries.
Ocean freight shipment types
It’s your choice: Eastern can ship your goods in a container that’s all yours (also known as Full Container Load, or FCL), or a container shared by other shippers (known as Less than Container Load, or LCL).
